The trunk is a stout straight twig, with the right sort of bark on it. The mass of the tree is made from dish-scourer pads, laminated, sprayed black, and then flocked with very dark green sawdust flock.
The flock I used left green stains over everything if it got at all damp. Annoying.
Cypress trees really are this neat, and there is no need to make them look ragged. Even after careful trimming, the borders between the scourer pads are still visible, but we have to live with these things. Besides, real Cypress trees do have dark breaks in them, running up and down, though admittedly not quite like the lines you see here.
